Kristel Cuenta: How to Manage Social Media Campaigns Like a Pro

You’re in for a treat. This has to be the most amusing Freelancer Spotlight interview I have done by far. Sooner, you’ll understand why. 🙂 Kristel Cuenta or Kit as she is fondly called was my pseudo officemate a couple of years back when I was still working with SEJ.
